This method returns the textAPI object corresponding to the map. The method is used as shown below.
In VC++, allocated on the heap (assuming featAPI is an instance of FeatureAPI):
ItextAPI* txtAPI = new ItextAPI;
txtAPI->m_lpDispatch = featAPI.getTextAPI();
In VC++, on the stack (assuming featAPI is an instance of FeatureAPI):
txtAPI.m_lpDispatch = featAPI.getTextAPI();
In VB (assuming featAPI is a FeatureAPI object):
In the declarations:
Public txtAPI As Object
Private txtAPI As Object
Set txtAPI = featAPI.getTextAPI
The client receives an instance of this object shared by other clients, if any.
